Blackhawks star Patrick Kane will not face any charges after a three-month police investigation involving him and a woman turned up insufficient evidence to pursue, an Erie County (N.Y) district attorney announced on Thursday.

“The totality of the credible evidence … does not sufficiently substantiate the complainant’s allegation,” Erie County District Attorney Frank A. Sedita said in a news release. Sedita said the “so-called case” was “rife with reasonable doubt.”

While Sedita’s announcement signaled an end to the criminal aspect of the allegations against Kane, it reopened debate in social media.
